Domestic tranquillity

June 16, 2009

There's something about having a leftist politician (and I use that term loosely) in the White House that brings out the crazies. We all remember how it happened under Bill Clinton, and it's clear that it's even more of a problem under Barack Obama. In fact, since his inauguration, there has been an incidence of right-wing domestic terrorism about every two and a half weeks.

Eight episodes of right-wing extremist violence in four and a half months. We haven't gone four weeks since February without some poor guy -- always with a long history of mental illness, usually with a record of military service and/or domestic violence, and invariably jacked up on a toxic cocktail of white male privilege; us-versus-them enemy seeking; fury at women, blacks and/or Jews; and a belief that the world as he knew it was ending unless he took up arms -- taking out his gun and offing innocent Americans in a suicidal bid for glory.

Remember how bent the conservatives got back in April when the Homeland Security Department warned us about right-wing domestic terrorism? Well, they were right. I wonder when we're going to start waterboarding white Republicans to gather information on the next attack?

The Abe and Joe Talk Radio Show on 06/16/09

Air date: 
Tue, 06/16/2009 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
A survey of the conservative zeitgeist yields stupidity and murder

While Joe takes a vacation, Abe takes a pass through conservative airspace, and flushes out words and deeds ranging from the merely stupid and offensive to the violent and murderous. Michelle Obama's ancestor? A gorilla! How to stop an abortion doctor from doing his work? Shoot him dead? How to get back at the Jews? Open fire in the Holocaust museum!

Are these incidents connected? Yes, they likely are. But not in the manner you might think. They are the sights and sounds of aggrieved white privilege.
